Birmingham City have signed Glenavon defender Michael McKerr.

McKerr was recruited from Glenavon, spurning Glasgow Rangers in the process, for a fee that could top £250,000 depending on success. He turns 18 in February.

Brum academy chief Terry Westley said: "Our main remit, with our scouts and agents working for us, is to find players in that 16, 17, 18-year-old bracket and we feel as if we are making good progress in that respect."
